Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies has been given a five-game touchline ban and a £9,000 ($15,000, 11,000 euros) fine for using abusive language towards a referee, the Football Association announced on Tuesday.
The Scot accepted an FA misconduct charge last week relating to an incident at half-time of his side's 2-2 draw at home to Leicester City in the second-tier Championship last month.
Davies was angered by referee Andrew Taylor's failure to send off Leicester's Wes Morgan for a last-man foul on Jamie Mackie in the penalty area, but he denied making contact with the official.
"Davies admitted the first breach that he used abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards the match referee in or around the tunnel area at half-time of this fixture," read a statement on the FA website.
"However, he denied the second breach of improper conduct, which alleged that he deliberately made contact with the match referee. This charge was found proven."
